Biographie de l'auteur
Donn Draeger was an internationally recognized authority on the martial arts of Asia and the author of many books on the subject, including Tuttle's six-volume Practical Karate series and, as co-author, Tuttle's Judo: Formal Techniques, which has sold TK copies since it was issued in paperback in 1990. A pioneer Westerner in the practice of Japanese martial arts, he was the first non-Japanese to compete in the All-Japan High-Rank Holders' Judo Tournament at the Kodokan.

Un ouvrage de référence, par un grand instructeur et vulgarisateur du sujet (Donn Draeger).
Malgré le côté daté du livre (publié en 1962), les bases et principes -fondamentaux- traités restent toujours d'actualité.

Originally written in 1962 by trainers from the Kodokan in Tokyo, its purpose was to catalog the traditional calisthenic exercises of judo and promote the then-radical use of modern western free weights. Part one is theory, part two is practice.
The books only flaw is its age. Looking at the pictures, one feels like Jerry Seinfeld when Lloyd Bridges decided to whip him into shape: "It's like a fitness museum!" Some exercises are pictured employing such unfashionable devices as rubber expanders and one-piece barbells of the sort that circus strongmen always use. Scrupulously up-to-date people will no doubt find some of it pretty funny, and the looks one would get at the gym when doing, say, reverse running on all fours would be funnier still.
Never the less, the book is packed solid with explanations and photos of hundreds of damn good exercises and lots of fairly good training information, all of it presented from a perspective of what is useful for judo. If supplemented by some common sense and maybe a book on gym safety it is quite valuable.
The book was first published during the early 1960's. Anyone with two cents of common sense will understand that is is unfair for us, nowadays, to criticize some of the methods used during that era. The weight training segment in the book, compared to todays standards, perhaps not cutting edge. Yet back then, it was obviously good enough for the likes of Judo Champions like Inokuma. Therefore, reading Draeger/Ishikawa's book provides another piece to puzzle and it will help us to analyze and understand the evolution of Judo training.
In particular, the 'Instructor Advice' and 'Student Advice' sections are worthwhile reading.
I recommend this book for a martial artist's library.
